Long Beach Blues Festival — Video Previews!
2009-08-14 · By Editor
Are you ready for the blues? In just a few weeks the Long Beach Blues Festival will fill Rainbow Lagoon Park with a genre of blues for everyone. We don’t about you, but we can’t wait a minute longer! So, to get you through until Labor Day we’ve rounded up these videos of performers scheduled to appear. Enjoy the music.
On Saturday and Sunday, September 5-6, music lovers will have the chance to see the great Mavis Staples, and witness the amazing guitar work of Sonny Landreth. Celebrate the end of Summer with Johnny Winter and marvel at the incomparable Betty Lavette, recently a guest artist at our new President’s Inaugural Ball. Enjoy soul-stirring Blues with the Homemade Jamz Blues Band family and bring your dancing shoes for such acts as Hill Country Revue.
Tickets are available exclusively through Ticketmaster, at $49.50 per day or $80 for a weekend pass. For more information visit http://www.jazzandblues.org/events/lbbf/2009/microsite/ or read this article all about the Long Beach Blues Festival.
